The Denver Biscuit Company, 3237 E. Colfax, has quickly become a place I call home, at least when it comes to foods I remember mom making.
The menu is simple; six sandwiches and several sides to add to your breakfast delight.
The sandwich I chose was the Ellsworth.
They take their extra large biscuit that’s light and fluffy, add a deep fried piece of chicken, slathered in sweet honey and slapped with fresh stone-ground mustard.
What I loved the most were the homemade pickles that top the dish.
The balance of flavors; sweet, savory and spicy make this a good morning wake-me up. Eating it with your hands is not only a crime, but it’s also very difficult.
The first bite transports you back into a time when simple foods without complex flavors ruled, but don’t be fooled, this comfort food kicked up a notch.
There is also the Franklin, like their Ellsworth, they take a nice big fluffy biscuit and add fried chicken, but this is where it takes a turn that will send you to the gym for an extra 500 sit-ups and three miles on the treadmill. They add cheese, then smother it in sausage or vegetarian gravy.
The DBC restaurant has two other businesses inside it; Fat Sully’s Pizza, where you can get a good slice of New York Pie and Atomic Cowboy Bar. The Biscuit Company is opened from 8 am – 2 pm. The sandwiches are first come, first served. I learned quickly that favorites go fast, so don’t delay getting there in the morning.
If you are counting calories in the New Year, beware this isn’t the place to go, but I know where I will be spending my cheat day for breakfast!
Prices for the sandwich range $6 to $8.50.
